How to uninstall Windows 10 from SSD?

 Share

Go to solution Solved by Hip,

I used diskpart and cleaned the disk. Then I initialized it and created a partition in discmanager and then formated to ntfs and selected a name for the drive for example c:\ 

 

Hey guys,

I'd like to uninstall Windows 10 from my SSD.

Because I cannot boot my operating system from it.

Is it enough to just right click and format it or how should I do it?

(I want to install Wibdows again from start but on another system that doesn't allow me to install Wibdows from a USB Stick.)

 

thank you in advance

When you try to install the windows again it'll give you the drivers options you have on system along side the option to format them, just do it then.

It doesn't work that way somehow.

I need to format it here on my other computer and than try to install Windows on the other machine.. long story lol

Can you tell me if I should take NTFS or FAT?

 

And somehow the connected SSD is not visible yet on the other computer. Which option in BIOS do I have to set?

 

edit:

 

I can only see it in the device manager (CT1000MX500SSD1)
